PERFECT TEN: Friars complete first unblemished regular season in program history

One week after wrapping up the undisputed district title, the Bishop Lynch Friars made a little history in front of a home crowd Friday, dropping Parish Episcopal by a final of 42-19 at Roffino Stadium.

The Friars (10-0, 7-0) became the first team in program history to complete an undefeated regular season, doing so with another dominant effort on both sides of the ball.

Parish (4-6, 2-5) was able to put up more points against the Friars than any previous opponent, but got six via a defensive touchdown to open the scoring. The Panthers scooped up a fumble on the second play of the game and held a 6-0 lead after a blocked extra point.

The Friars scored four straight touchdowns to put the game away, took a 35-12 lead at the break and added a third-quarter score for a 30-point lead entering the final frame. Bishop Lynch went with reserves in the final 12 minutes, when Parish would pick up the majority of its yards and add a final score.

Jacob Lewis rushed for 95 yards and three scores, surpassing the 1,000-yard mark for the season, Jordan Hudson added 65 and two TDs on the ground and Jarek Broussard scored once and posted 96 total yards on just seven touches.

Chris Sigsbee recorded a pair of sacks, four tackles for loss and forced a fumble to lead the defense. Davis Peck intercepted a pass and had six tackles, three of which went for loss. Carson Garrett went 6-for-6 on extra point tries and booted five touchbacks through the end zone.

The Friars open the TAPPS Division I postseason at home on Saturday, Nov. 18 against Beaumont Kelly (1-7). Kickoff is scheduled for 7 pm.
